My Galaxy 4G has the sms notification hung up and won't go away. I was using google voice as my voicemail provider and it sent a text notification of an voicemail. Now it wont go away but the message isnt in the inbox. If I swipe down to try to clear it it comes back instantly, if I click on it, it open a new text message creation screen.
I know others have had this problem, but haven't been able to search a fix.
And yes I've soft booted a dozen times, pulled the battery a half dozen times, uninstalled google voice and changed my google voice account settings to no longer send the text notifications. Plus generated another voicemail before uninstalling it, had it send a text notification, deleted it and it still didnt fix it.
try rebooting into recovery and clearing cache. (3 button method)
I don't know how to do that.
turn off phone
turn on by holding both volume up and down as well as the power switch (easier to use 2 hands)
when the splash screen comes on, let go of power but continue to hold volume buttons.
when the words scroll on your screen, let go of volume
you should be in recovery (3E)
Thank you for the information, but it didn't fix it.
you dont mind clearing you messages...
go to settings/manage apps/messaging
hope it helps
Thank you but I tried that one also and it didn't work.
if it really bugs you, can always full wipe. make sure to back up your stuff
You have tried everything there is to try except a master reset. Is it the Google Voice SMS icon, or the stock SMS notification icon?
Its the stock sms icon, it says I have a pending google voice mail. I uninstalled google voice and my inbox there is clean.
Lets see if the message is hiding on your SIM messages. Go to your message inbox, press the menu key, and go to settings. Look for "Manage SIM card messages", if there are any messages here, delete them. If that does not work, under message settings uncheck notification, and power off the phone for a few minutes.
There where no messages on the sim card and powering down with the notifications turned off didn't change anything. I had actually done that one before.
I saw someone with the exact same problem on another forum (different website), but there where no responses to their question.
Sorry 3forty3, the only option left to remove that notification is to master reset your device. Everything else has been done.
Try Sending a text message to yourself. when you get it. pull down the notification bar and tap the new message. It should go away...If not try to disable the Notifications in your "Messaging" app. In the main screen of your "Messaging" app or where all the threads are click the menu button on your phone then tap on "Settings" scroll all the way down to the "Notifications" option and uncheck it, then restart your phone. Good luck.
Thank you, but I have tried that already also.
I'm pretty apprehensive about doing a master reset Alicia. It seems like the message notification is coming in through the network not from within the phone.
